Markets – the more the better!

I am looking out for information on all the market and trading opportunities for start-turning on Christmas lightsups and small businesses, so please do pass on to me any information you find out.  This is also about creating a different feel and vibe to spaces and locations that may feel run down or lack luster.  What better than taking over such spaces for trade, arts, music, gatherings etc!

The 2nd Seven Kings Winter Market took place on Friday 21st November – it was a pilot to  open up the space just outside the station and along to the Joker pub into something different.  The weather wasn’t brilliant but local businesses and start-ups had an opportunity to trade in a chalkingfestive atmosphere with carol singing, a DJ, and street dance by Redbridge Drama Centre Pioneer dance.  Organised by Seven Kings Business Partnership.

There’s a market in Wanstead this weekend – the Wanstead Makers Market on Saturday 30th November.  It will be too late to book a stall I should think but worth going along.

The Welcome Centre in Ilford is running a Gift and Craft fair on Saturday 6th December.  They are advertising local vendors so if you are interested contact Feni on 020 8514 3283 or email
